"A heart aching and deeply empathetic observation that embraces the raw emotion of its characters.", Variety, Berlinale 2021

A group of teenage girls have been placed in a residential care home with social workers. This forced "family" experience creates unexpected tensions and intimacies. An incident triggers a chain of over-reactions. The fall-out reveals the weaknesses of retrograde juvenile system, as well as the demons that haunt "La Mif". A social drama, mirroring our ill-mannered morals.
